PREPA­RA­TIONS are un­der way for a school’s first fes­ti­val to raise funds for char­ity.

Ley Hill School’s PTA has been busy plan­ning the in­au­gu­ral LeyFest, which will take place on the school’s play­ing fields on Sun­day, July 26 from mid­day to 8pm.

Par­ent and PTA com­mit­tee mem­ber Claire Rooney said: “We are thrilled about this sum­mer’s event. We’re plan­ning a nor­mal, grown-up fes­ti­val, but one that has a real fam­ily feel, with loads of bril­liant ac­tiv­i­ties aimed specif­i­cally at kids, from lit­tle ones all the way up to teenagers.”

As well as a host of lo­cal tal­ent al­ready lined up to play at the fes­ti­val, in­clud­ing Tin­lin, Shindig, Har­mony’s School of Dance, Hol­lie Thuron, The Num­bers, The Fire Gals, Replica Rock­a­holics and Lama Canyon, fea­tur­ing Ley Hill School’s own head teacher Nigel Hoff on bass gui­tar, there will be science ex­per­i­ments and sto­ries, go kart­ing, sports, yoga, Zumba, soft play, hair braid­ing, henna tat­toos and more.

The Jolly Sports­man, in Eskdale Av­enue, Che­sham, is pro­vid­ing a li­censed Jolly Tent and vis­i­tors will be able to sam­ple a range of food, in­clud­ing a hog roast, lamb spit, veg­e­tar­ian Turk­ish street food, bar­be­cue as well as Timo’s pota­toes as seen in Che­sham’s high street as well as pop­corn, can­dyfloss and milk­shakes.

The fes­ti­val will raise funds for the school, in Bot­ley Road, Ley Hill, as well as Che­sham Toy Bank, a char­ity set-up last year by Mrs Rooney to en­sure all lo­cal chil­dren are able to have a toy at Christ­mas, no mat­ter how dis­ad­van­taged their cir­cum­stances.

Tick­ets are now on sale and are limited to 400. Tick­ets cost £15 (full) and £5 (un­der-13s) and pre-school­ers go free.

There is a £1 book­ing fee to cover Paypal fees.
